Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Files New Trademark For "Golden Eagle"

Jan 20 2015 07:00 AM | Jeep News
From the newly unveiled Ram 1500 Rebel, to Dodge's popular Blacktop models, no other automaker seems to love special edition models quite like the Fiat Chrysler bunch. And if a recent trademark filing is any indication, FCA could have yet another special model on its way to buyers in the future.
